[fpc-devel] Suggestion: reference counted objects

Strings do not contain pioneers themselves.
Any standard tree design however usually contains circular reverences, and 
pose the thread of leak if Weak pointers are not used usually for the Parent 
pointer in the children.
Double linked list is another example.

With best regards,

Ref counted strings are no problem with any (normal) use of same.

In this thread you find an example describing how ARC Objects easily can
impose memory leaks.
